This MiniCourse introduces inbred, outbred, and hybrid mouse strains and explains breeding schemes, nomenclature, genetic drift, finding phenotypic information, animal health and more.
NEW! Gain a basic understanding of genetics versus epigenetics and learning about environmental causes and consequences of epigenetic changes in human and mouse model studies.
Learn the history behind the development of the mouse as a model system for human disease through landmark experiments, classical genetics and groundbreaking discoveries.
What are the unique advantages of using mice in genetics and genomics research? Learn by reviewing basic Mendelian genetics, understanding mouse strains, nomenclature and targeted alleles.
Gain a basic understanding of laboratory mouse reproductive biology by examining basic anatomy, sex determination, the fertilization process, estrous cycle and more.
Julia is a woman in her early 20s establishing care in your practice. During the course of your conversation, she tells you that she recently did an at-home ancestry test and was surprised when...
Learn how to best use Cre-lox gene editing technology to genetically engineer general, tissue specific and inducible knockouts, apply the FLP-FRT system and turn on fluorescent reporter genes.
